UTI discovery may lead to new treatments

Sufferers of recurring urinary tract infections (UTIs) could expect more effective treatments thanks to University of Queensland-led research. UTIs are one of the most common bacterial infections according to Professor Mark Schembri from UQ’s School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences. “They’re a major burden on global healthcare,” he said. “Approximately Continue Reading

Targeting new treatments for concussions by transforming brain pathology

Badri Roysam, chair of the University of Houston Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is leading a $3.19 million project to create new technology that could provide an unprecedented look at the injured brain. The technology is a marriage, as Roysam calls it, between a new generation of “super microscopes,” Continue Reading

Targeting new treatments for concussions by transforming brain pathology

Badri Roysam, chair of the University of Houston Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is leading a $3.19 million project to create new technology that could provide an unprecedented look at the injured brain and lead to new therapies for concussions.

Reduce the severity of these common medical emergencies with 8 acupressure treatments while help arrives

Acupressure is a healing technique which involves pressing certain pressure points in the body by the thumbs and fingers to clear blockages and relieve pain, similar in principle to acupuncture, which provides the same relief but through the use of needles. Acupressure can be used in medical emergencies as a Continue Reading

Similarities of small cell cancers to blood cancers could lead to better treatments

An interdisciplinary team of UCLA scientists has found that small cell neuroendocrine cancers from a range of tissues have a common molecular signature and share drug sensitivities with blood cancers. The discoveries could improve the diagnoses of these aggressive cancers and lead to the development of new treatments that build Continue Reading

Fake opioid addiction treatments on the rise: FDA and FTC sending stern warnings to those profiting off the illness

The skyrocketing number of fake opioid addiction treatments have prompted the United States Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to issue sharp admonishments to pharmaceutical companies that hawk such products, said a Daily Mail article. The warning comes in the wake of numerous companies rushing Continue Reading

Study: Some biologic treatments for psoriasis may be safer for patients

A common chronic skin condition affecting 125 million people worldwide, psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, a class of disorders in which the immune system attacks the body’s own healthy cells. In recent years, new medications—known as biologics—that inhibit the overactive immune system by targeting specific inflammatory pathways, have revolutionized the Continue Reading

Photodynamic treatments for human health and the food supply: Light compounds being developed that will fight microbial infections and cancer

A new field of medical science is emerging from six universities and five partner organizations in Europe. The POLYTHEA project, coordinated at the University of Limoges, aims to train doctorate candidates in the field of photodynamic treatments. Researchers are learning how to develop active light compounds that fight cancer and Continue Reading

Another danger of antibiotic overuse: It undermines other therapies, such as cancer treatments

Antibiotics can be life-saving medications, and their development is considered one of the greatest achievements of modern medicine. However, more is not necessarily better when it comes to antibiotics, and the rise of superbugs is testament to this fact. Now there’s another good reason to avoid overusing them: It can Continue Reading

Traditional cancer treatments cause inflammation, promoting aggressive tumor growth, according to study

Independent media leaders like Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and editor of Natural News, have long been vilified by the mainstream media for daring to insist that chemotherapy actually causes cancer. Time and again, Natural News has published articles based on scientific studies that prove the inefficiency and downright danger of Continue Reading

Holistic doctor continues to be threatened over her alternative treatments – here’s her message to government and Big Pharma

The mainstream medical establishment, controlled by big government which is summarily influenced by Big Pharma, continues its war on alternative and holistic medicinal choice, as if Americans were never really supposed to have been granted by our founders the freedom to choose their own forms of treatment.
